I am yet to become a cheese expert, however, I like to think I know a thing or two about the quality of cheese.
When it comes to British Cheddars (my all time favourite type of cheese), the quality and price vary quite exponentially. This is truer as sales of cheese and cheddar in general grow.
Though price can affect the quality of a cheese, you don’t have to buy the top end of the market for the very best. Especially when money is tight and you have a cheese obsession like myself.
Eating cheese is serious business. We don’t just pop cheese into our fat gobs, chew and swallow. We take a whiff of the cheese and embrace its stinky aroma. We make small delicate nibbles to enjoy the texture of the cheese and then savour the taste and flavour before we finally consume it.
This is the true cheese addict experience.
Cheese contains a lot of fat, and fat, in general, has a lot of the flavours of our food. If you have not tried it before, room temperature butter tastes a million times better compared to cold.
The reasoning behind this is science!
